Hey everyone, I’m very excited to announce the first speaker for Hustle this November. Many of you will know him well as a real voice and ambassador for the NI digital creative community. Many of you will know him having graduated from his course at Ulster University. But I know Chris through meeting him at conferences like DiBi and spitballing the idea of doing something together - and here it is - Christopher Murphy is our first speaker at Hustle 9.
Here is his official Bio…
A designer, writer and speaker based in Belfast, Christopher mentors purpose-driven businesses, helping them to launch and thrive. He encourages small businesses to think big and he enables big businesses to think small.
As a design strategist he has worked with companies, large and small, to help drive innovation, drawing on his 25+ years of experience working with clients including: Adobe, Electronic Arts and the BBC.
The author of numerous books, he is currently hard at work on his eighth, ‘Designing Delightful Experiences’, for Smashing Magazine and ninth, ‘Building Beautiful UIs’, for Adobe. Both are accompanied by a wealth of digital resources, and are drawn from Christopher’s 15+ years of experience as a design educator.
A passionate speaker he has spoken at events, large and small, all over the world, including Smashing Conference, beyond tellerrand and DIBI.
